Frente a la muerte la esperanza de cada hombre, a menudo, entra en el valle de la prueba. Más todavía:  si se trata de la enfermedad y de la muerte de un muchacho, entonces es la vida humana misma lo que parece vacilar al borde abismal de lo incomprensible. Sin embargo, existen testimonios capaces de penetrar allí donde la razón se oscurece, como un rayo de sol que alumbra y calienta el corazón de quienes ya han dejado de esperar. La vida de Carlo Acutis es uno de estos rayos. De hecho ha sido como la luz de un relámpago en una tarde de verano que ha vencido la niebla de los miedos y de los sin sentidos, haciéndonos vislumbrar lo que verdaderamente hay más allá de la noche de la vida.

Questo libro contiene ora diversi sommari HTML che renderanno la lettura un vero piacere!<br /><br />Nel 1794, decise di scrivere la propria autobiografia: Monsieur Nicolas in otto volumi scaglionati tra il 1794 e il 1797. Nel 1795, la Convenzione di Termidoro gli venne in aiuto versandogli la somma di duemila franchi. Benché le sue dichiarazioni fossero orientate a favore del nuovo potere, le sue amicizie aristocratiche e la sua reputazione lo fecero cadere in disgrazia. Entrò al ministero della Polizia, ma la sua cattiva salute lo costrinse a ritirarsi. Morì poco dopo, in miseria.

Questo libro contiene ora diversi sommari HTML che renderanno la lettura un vero piacere!<br /><br />Il libro è un racconto autobiografico dell'autore in un momento della sua vita in cui attraversa una crisi di malinconia esistenziale. Descrive la sua ricerca di risposte alle domande profonde: "Cosa uscirà da ciò che faccio oggi? cosa farò domani? Cosa uscirà dalla mia vita? E "Qual è il significato della vita? ", Senza risposte per lui e che rendono la vita" impossibile ".<br />Tolstoj parla della sua infanzia, del suo abbandono della sua fede ortodossa russa, della sua padronanza della forza, della sua volontà di potenza e di come, dopo aver raggiunto il successo finanziario e un considerevole status sociale, la sua vita non avesse più alcun significato.<br /><br />Dopo aver disperato i suoi tentativi di trovare risposte nella scienza, nella filosofia, nella saggezza orientale e nei suoi colleghi scrittori, "confessa" di aver trovato la risposta al suo dolore nelle profonde convinzioni religiose ortodosse dei cittadini comuni . Descrive come ha presentato il suo scetticismo razionale e l'orrore della "superstizione delle verità cristiane" al fine di ottenere la pace mentale di cui aveva bisogno per rendere possibile la sua "sopravvivenza".<br /><br />Il termine "confessione" è stato usato perché Tolstoy era ben consapevole di essere contrario ai pregiudizi anti-religiosi / atei che dominavano gran parte dell'élite laica russa ed europea (di default a causa delle carenze dell'ortodossia ).

In the face of death, the hope of every man is put to the test. When one is dealing with the illness and death of a young boy, one seems to oscillate on the edge of incomprehensibility. Yet there are testimonies that enter the darkness of the mind like a ray of light and warm the hearts of those who have ceased to hope. The life of Carlo Acutis is one of these rays of light. Indeed, it was the light of a lightning bolt on a summer’s night that overcame the darkness of fear and meaninglessness and permitted us to see what there truly is beyond the night of life.

Im Angesicht des Todes wird die Hoffnung des Menschen auf eine harte Probe gestellt. Nicht nur das: Wenn es sich um eine Krankheit handelt oder den Tod eines Jugendlichen, dann scheint das menschliche Leben eine Gratwanderung am Rand des Unbegreiflichen zu sein. Und doch gibt es Zeugnisse, die wie ein Sonnenstrahl das Dunkel des Verstandes erhellen und das Herz desjenigen erwärmen, der schon aufgehört hat zu hoffen. Das Leben von Carlo [Karl] Acutis ist ein solcher Sonnenstrahl. Ja mehr noch, es ist wie der Blitzstrahl in einer Sommernacht, der das Dunkel der Ängste besiegt und uns erlaubt hat zu sehen, was wirklich hinter der vorübergehenden Nacht des Lebens ist.

Face à la mort, l’espérance de chaque homme est mise à l’épreuve. À plus forte raison, quand il s’agit de la maladie et de la mort d’un jeune homme, la vie humaine elle-même semble osciller sur la crête de l’incompréhensible. Il existe pourtant des témoignages qui pénètrent dans l’obscurité de la raison comme un rayon de soleil et réchauffent le cœur de la personne qui a cessé d’espérer. La vie de Carlo Acutis est l’un de ces rayons de soleil. Ou mieux, elle a été la lumière d’un éclair dans une nuit d’été qui a vaincu les ténèbres des peurs et de l’absence de sens et nous permet de voir réellement ce qu’il y a au-delà de la nuit de la vie.

C'est en lisant cette phrase que je me suis décidé à écrire ce livre qui ce veut être un recueil de citation des plus grands hommes de notre ère et de bien avant.

In this series we're going to look at an unbelievable topic that no one likes to address. From our turning a blind eye, millions of children are suffering the worst possible evil known to any human being. It is going on right under our noses and no one is paying attention to the kids. This series will begin in 1989 with the Franklin Credit Union Scandal and extend all the way through the 2014 case of Alisa and Gabriel Dearman of Hampstead, London. It is a bone chilling reality and the sheer volume of predators is uncapped. We say, for the most part, that we are God fearing people, yet we refuse to believe in the evil that can reside inside of a person. A seemingly "normal" person. How have we been so easily duped? <br /><br />These children experience things most of us couldn't even imagine. They began at a very young age believing that what they were made to do was normal. As most of them grew and attempted to deal with what their lives had been, they often are unable to cope with the horror that they have experienced and will often time put that part of their personality away and become other personalities within themselves. <br /><br />The extent to what pedophiles and satanists are willing to go to get our children is sickening. They sell them, force sex on them, they beat and kick them, they are tortured with electricity, fire, water, further torture, murder of their families or themselves. The ghastly people that commit these crimes are often given an extraordinarily lenient sentence which begs the question why? <br /><br />This is an awareness that must be handled and stopped permanently. No child should be forced or manipulated into an adult world or any adult situation that they are neither physically nor emotionally capable of dealing with. These kids come from orphanages, girls and boys homes, foster care, social services, breeders and miscellaneous people. They have no protection, no love, no hope. <br /><br />Today, we can give them that. We can create organizations and begin to check on those given charge over these little lives. We can watch and report suspicious behavior. We can raise our voices for them.
